Most iconic villains of Bollywood
In Bollywood, heroes steal the show. However, in Andaz Apna Apna, not only the heroes but the villains have made history as well. Shakti Kapoor as Crime Master Gogo was a refreshingly lighthearted contrast to Hindi cinema’s blood-angry villains who didn’t only make audiences across India laugh harder every time they watched the film but also managed to rank this character in the list of most loved villains ever. At par with him was Paresh Rawal as Teja who added the right amount of excitement and humour to the story with his brilliantly essayed double role.

The ever so entertaining camaraderie between Amar-Prem
Bromance has never looked this adorable on screen as Amar and Prem made it happen in this film. From ‘Do dost ek hi pyali me chai piyenge to Chit Main Jeeta, Pat tu hara’ Amar-Prem’s equation is forever etched in our hearts as one of the most iconic friendships in the history of Bollywood. Its amusing to see how Prem’s innocence was marvelously paired with Amar’s street-smart antics. Their perfect comic timings, priceless expressions and hilarious love-hate relationship will still force one to shed tears of happiness.
